Spectacular Spring Break Fun at the Don Harrington Discovery Center

By  | 

Showcasing creative and inspiring ways to have fun, the Don Harrington Discovery Center in Amarillo has the makings of a Texas-sized good time with their Spring Break Spectacular event, happening March 11-15, 2019. Everyone knows the family that plays together stays together. Why not show them how it’s done at this week-long family-fun fest with some “secret” learning incorporated in the mix?

With a little bit of adrenaline as its main ingredient, the Spring Break Spectacular at Don Harrington Discovery Center starts off with “The Jumanji Trials” on Monday, March 11, 2019. Think back to when this Disney movie first came out and how much you enjoyed watching everything the players went through. Then refocus for the remake that your kids watched and, of course, loved (because hey, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree). You’ll understand exactly why this day is going to be a ton of fun. It’s truly a “game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind.” Visitors to the DHDC can participate in creating their own board game using recycled materials, watch demonstrations featuring live animals including snakes and spiders, and create their own camouflage at the Face Painting Station!

Tuesday’s events are even more amazing! With a title like “Return of the Dinosaurs,” you know your children and grandchildren are going to love it. You might even get to live out a science experiment daydream of your younger days as well. The Discovery Center is making it easy to make a mess with an activity designed around the creation of exploding volcanoes! Following that, kids can learn how to use common materials to construct their own house to withstand an earthquake. If that’s not enough, the family can participate as paleontologists and have a fossil dig, or the kids can make their own fossils/imprints to take home as souvenirs.
